Children can practice simple sewing with easy-to-make lacing cards. Cut heavy cardboard into simple clothing shapes. Laminate them or cover them with clear contact paper and punch holes around the edges. Provide shoelaces or lengths of yarn with bobby pin & blunt "needles" for the children to sew with. Demonstrate to children how to sew around the cards with overlapping stitches.
